Hello,
I was trying to remove a trojan virus (downloader) from my computer and when I tried to reboot in safemode my windows password wouldn't work anymore. I got into safemode using msconfig. I am unable to get out of safemode using F8 and now i don't know what to do. Please help me! Thank you.

Hello and thank you for your replies. I do not have the recover CD. When I try to "Start Windows Normally" it still goes into safe mode and asks for my windows password (which doesn't work). So I'm in safe mode and my Windows password doesn't work so that I can get into the comp.

Can you borrow an xp disc from someone maybe a friends? your not going to be installing windows but it will help you get to the recovery console which is at the beginning of installation of xp.


Can you get into recovery console? if so....

then follow my instructions please here:

type
control userpasswords2

When the window opens, look for the box that says Users must use a password.......
If it's checked, uncheck it.
It will then tell you that at least one person has to have a password.

Select the one you want from your user list, and leave the password blank
reboot pc

It might ask for the password again, so just hit enter.
It should boot up and not ask you anymore.
